Song of Loss and Grief – When You Lose Someone


This song was born this week for the student body of Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK. One of their fellow students was brutally murdered this week along with a friend. This student's name is Carissa - a freshman. Having a daughter on campus there and mentoring students there each Thursday has caused me to seek God for a song of deliverance and comfort for them. This is a song from Father's heart. Disregard me and hear His heart for you in your own time of loss. Pray for Carissa's family. Pray for her fellow students. Pray for the university and its leadership. Send grieving hearts to watch this video. Pray that all who view it would find deep comfort and healing from Father as they fall into His arms.

PS.   I had the honor of sharing this song with the student body when I led chapel worship at ORU this past Friday. You can download the mp3 for free at

Daily Devotion - September 27, 2011

“…For You bring peace, it’s true, like the sound of falling rain…”

I love a good, long, hard rain shower in the spring. There is not a much more relaxing sound that I can think of. Almost hypnotic, the soothing sound reduces my soul to the state of solitude so easily…like an unexpected gift from the Lord – a kiss of glory – that says, “I’m here, child. Rest with me for a while. Let’s enjoy one another’s presence.” When I face a trial or a hurtful circumstance, my soul longs for such soothing. When we acknowledge the presence of God in the midst of those trials and choose to view them from His perspective, His presence can have the effect of calming my soul and soothing my inflamed emotions. Just as the sound of rain on a rooftop brings solace to the soul, the presence of God brings solace to our entire being, regardless of our circumstances. Listen for the rain of His presence today as you simply invite Him to make you very aware of His presence.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:6-7 NASB
